RAMWASS - Integrated Decision Support System for Risk Assessment and Management

Leaders:  P. Wriggers
Team:  B. Avci
Year:  2009
Is Finished:  yes

The objective of the EU-project RAMWASS is to develop and validate a new decision support system (DSS) for the risk assessment and management for the prevention and/or reduction of the negative impacts caused by human activities on the water/sediment/soil system at river basin scale in fluvial ecosystems. The DSS will combine and integrate environmental and geo-physical data from earth observation systems, on-site sensors and georeferenced information, advanced computer simulation and artificial intelligence tools for generating knowledge contributing to the assessment of the ecological impact and the design of effective response actions maximising the integrity and safety of the ecosystem and human life.
